    It's been pretty quiet here for the past four years honestly (which is nice because we got hit pretty good for the four years before that and could use a break). Earlier this year or last year I think there was the possibility that we might be hit. The school would have closed during that time and on campus students forced to evacuate to other places or local shelters, like high schools etc (ironic, considering we're a college... heh). The thing never hit though.

    Hurricane season really isn't that big of a deal unless you're a homeowner or are unfortunate enough to get hit head on by a big storm.

    Thanks for your opinion!
    I was also thinking about cultural advantages/opportunities I would get if I live in NY

    and I have a question- do I have to know how to use programs like MAYA before the school starts?

    You don't need to, but I'd recommend it strongly. A lot of students enter computer animation programs only to discover that they don't actually enjoy animating in Maya, and end up wasting a whole lot of money.

    You don't. But I took a precollege course to check out if I would be able to do it/enjoy it. Even if Maya is challenging for students, we have students that learn the basics, then use 3D to branch out into 2D work or things like 3D printing/sculpture work.

    Also if anyone is in the city in the coming months, feel free to attend the various events we've got coming up. Here's a still of one of the senior thesis this year. There's a lot of amazing talent this graduating class.
